    Numbers and units of measurement

    • Spell out the number if the unit of measurement is written out and use a numeral when the unit of measurement is abbreviated.

      The surface area of the School's premises is five hundred square metres.
      The conference hall is 2 km from here.

    • Do not use points or plurals with abbreviated units of measurement. Insert a non-breaking space between the numeral and the unit.
